No Talks With New Delhi Until India Ends Restrictions, Reverses Decision On Kashmir – Imran Khan

Published

on

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that there will no talks with India until the Modi Government reverses its decision on revoking Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, ends restrictions and withdraws its troops from the region.

In an opinion piece in The New York Times on Thursday, Imran Khan again warns that if the world does nothing to stop India’s decision on Kashmir, the two nuclear-armed countries will get ever closer to a “direct military confrontation.”

Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after India abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution and revoked special status of Jammu and Kashmir.


Reacting to India’s decision, Pakistan expelled the Indian High Commissioner after it downgraded the diplomatic ties with New Delhi. “On Kashmir, the dialogue must include all stakeholders, especially the Kashmiris,” Imran Khan says.

“But dialogue can start only when India reverses its illegal annexation of Kashmir, ends the curfew and lockdown, and withdraws its troops to the barracks,” Imran Khan said.

Asserting that the abrogation of Article 370 was its internal matter, India has strongly criticised Pakistan for making “irresponsible statements” and provocative anti-India rhetoric over issues internal to it.

Imran Khan said that when he was elected prime minister last August, one of his foremost priorities was to work for a lasting and just peace in South Asia. But he says that all his efforts to start a dialogue for peace were “rebuffed” by India.

With his efforts to globalize the Kashmir issue, PM Khan has been repeatedly trying to raise the possibility of a military confrontation between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

“With the nuclear shadow hovering over South Asia, we realise that Pakistan and India have to move out of a zero-sum mindset to begin dialogue on Kashmir, various strategic matters and trade,” he says.

If the world does nothing to stop India’s moves on Kashmir, he says, warning that “there will be consequences for the whole world as two nuclear-armed states get ever closer to a direct military confrontation.”

Reacting to Pakistan raising the nuclear issue frequently, the External Affairs Ministry spokesperson earlier this month noted that Islamabad would like to project a “panic situation” in South Asia.

“From their side, they would like to project a panic situation, the international community does not think there is a war-like situation. It is a ploy to deflect attention,” the MEA spokesperson said in New Delhi on August 9.

Imran Khan, in his article, also urged the international community that it is imperative that they “think beyond trade and business advantages.”
